Prosecutor Gavin Silbert SC told the jury Lindholm was a "femme fatale" who controlled men and had been involved in an intense drug-fuelled sexual relationship with Trabert.
"Mr Trabert was infatuated with her. He left his wife and children," Mr Silbert said. "He was involved in an intense sexual relationship with her."
"Both the accused Ryan and Trabert were infatuated with her and under her spell. She had an uncanny ability to manipulate men as you will hear and was able to get them pretty well to do whatever much she sought," Mr Silbert said.
The prosecutions say he was beaten with a baseball bat and then stabbed four times before his body was stuffed between two boulders in an isolated spot at Mount Korong north of Bendigo.
Mr Silbert said Trabert had allegedly written account of what happened to Amey while on remand and handed it to another prisoner.
"Trabert told him that he had taken drugs prior to committing the murder in order to be like a Superman," Mr Silbert said.
Both Ryan and Trabert say they did not kill Mr Amey.
The trial before Justice Lex Lasry continues.
